“Me Na Me Fe” (Let’s play)
“Me Na Me Fe ” is an educational entertainment program for schools, communities, and libraries, it’s designed to suit every grade level to learn and understand African traditional culture and its history through performing and interaction with student’s, teachers and adult’s. Unlocking the minds of our future leaders with traditional music through storytelling to see the happiest side of life is the goal and determination of this program.
West African Drumming, Dance & Storytelling
Over the course of my residency, students and teachers will be encouraged to participate in the discovery of West African drumming, dance and storytelling. West African culture is rich with symbols, rituals, conflict, history and opportunity. The metaphor of West African music and dance allows students to experience the culture in a rhythmic and physical realm. My comprehensive programs involve elements of dance and music but from the perspective of transforming traditional music and movement into contemporary statements of change and hope. Students will experience and learn traditional songs and dances. There will be optimal moments for storytelling and for revealing to students the history of the dance and rituals within the authentic context of an ethnic community/classroom gathering.
School Assembly Program
Christian Adeti & Guests (Cultural Arts & Learning) School Assembly Program
Need a great performance for your school assembly? In today’s economy when our schools are faced with budget cuts, the first programs to go are the arts programs.
Let Christian Adeti and Guests expose your students to African culture through an interactive performance that combines dance, music, games, wordplay and instruments!Adding this performance to your next school assembly will not only support your educational curriculum but will also allow students to:
Develop creative expression, practice active motion and develop rhythmic awareness as they explore African dance and movement.
Develop general fitness, coordination, and balance as the students explore African dance and instrument play.
Stimulate creativity and enhance self-expression through imaginative play and creative movement.
Have an enhanced sense of cultural awareness and understanding of the concept of diversity.
Suitable for K – 12 grade students with a minimum of one or two artists. These assemblies are high energy and require a lot of active participation from both students and teachers. A multipurpose room or a stage is the best suited room for this program, however, we are willing to work with whatever resources are available to your school.
